Alamo Bowl Practice Begins in San Antonio

Updated: Friday, December 27 2013, 10:09 AM CST

Thursday's Alamo Bowl experience featured lessons in literature. Early in the morning, Mack Brown posted a William Shakespeare quote to his Twitter account. "Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none."

Later in the morning, reporters had a chance to watch poetry in motion as Oregon, with nation's third highest scoring offense, hit the practice field.

Reporters were only permitted inside Oregon's workout for ten minutes, but that's ten minutes longer than Texas allowed media in to its practice.

With country music including George Strait's hit "All My Exes Live in Texas" as well as "The Eyes of Texas" (yes, the Longhorns' fight song), booming from the speakers, the Ducks worked out for the first time in San Antonio.

Many people will question Oregon's desire to be in the Alamo Bowl after playing in the BCS each of the past four years. However, Ducks head coach Mark Helfrich says that's not a factor. What is though: game-planning for Texas's athletes.

"We can't match up with that in terms of just man for man talent," Helfrich told reporters. "I think you know they are a very well coached team and like us have very high expectations. They want to finish right. There is the added motivation with coach brown retiring but our guys will be excited to play."
